 More than a dozen trauma survivors and their families gathered at Memorial Regional Hospital on May 16 for a tearful reunion with medical staff, first responders and community partners. The event, called Injury is No Accident: 25 Years of Making a Difference, served as a venue for former patients and families to share their support and stories, continue healing and say thanks to their caregivers. The event was held in honor of National Trauma Awareness Month.

 
“Trauma is the leading public health challenge of our lifetime,” said Andrew Rosenthal, MD, Medical Director of Memorial Healthcare System’s Division of Trauma Services. “Trauma is the greatest cause of death and disability for our children and young adults. Today is about coming to terms with their experience, what can we do about it, and healing.”

National Nurses United today urged Senate members to reject S. 2372, the VA Mission Act which they called a major step towards the privatization of veterans health care which could endanger the health of millions of U.S. service veterans. The Senate is expected to vote as soon as Wednesday on its version of the bill that passed the House last week.

 
“Marketed as a means to expand some benefits for veterans, this bill masks a long desired corporate, far right goal of accelerating the dismantling and privatization of our Veterans Administration program at the expense of countless veterans who have served our nation,” said NNU Co-President Jean Ross, RN. NNU represents 11,000 VA RNs among its 150,000 members.
